Life in Books - Another Overtagged Drabble About Seagulls

Work Text:

They live for books. Books are truth: word of the Lord. Adso knows this in his soul, feels it in his bones where he sits in the Aedificium, curled over his desk: workplace dimly lit by deep-set windows.

Yet, he gets restless: mind wandering, legs jumping. This is when his quill wanders to the margins, depicting fanciful animals and fierce warriors; once a butt trumpet.

But today he's visiting the Balneary and it makes him think of the sea, which he has never seen. Their Library knows the marvels of the world though, so he's pleasing himself dreaming a seagull.
